[resolved] Fixed footer position - get page name/id into css class (5 posts)

    In desperate need of help.

    I am making a custom theme for a client, and they are adamant that the footer be at a specific height on most pages. Problem is I can't get this to work.

    I'm using blueprint.css for my theme (http://www.blueprintcss.org/tests/parts/grid.html). I've tried a bunch of things, and my last resort was using a spacer.gif image on every page, but alas that has failed too.

    My structure is as follows

    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    <div class="container">  
        <div id="head" class="span-24 last"></div>
        <div id="content" class="span-24 last">
    <!-- End header.php -->
        <!-- Page/ post content goes here -->
    <!-- Begin footer.php -->
        <div id="footer" class="span-24 last"></div>
        <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    My permalinks are set to: /%page%/%category%/

    How can I add a custom id/class to the <div id="content" class="span-24 last"> in header.php for each page?

    Please help.

    Via the theme's stylesheet:

    .content {

    Hi esmi.

    Problem is that I don't want to hide the overflow! Basically say my ideal height is 600px and that my footer should start at 600px from the top.

    Some pages have content that fits in 500px and some pages in 700px. in the case of 700px, client is willing to let it hang there. However for pages that are 500px, the client still wants the footer to sit at 600px, and since all pages vary i can't use padding or margin or anything like that.

    Any suggestions?
